In Loving Memory of Our Fallen Brother

     Friends, Brothers, and Sisters, it is with heavy hearts, that Lodge #131 announces the passing of Deputy First Class Christopher “Chris” Cole. Chris was a three-year veteran of the HCSO. He served twenty-four years with the Maryland State Police and was a veteran of the United States Navy. Our Brother was with us hand and heart in this life. Chris was finally able to rest peacefully Sunday morning (February 23rd). Let us take pale comfort in the fact that our Brother is beyond the pale of suffering and free from earthly care. 

          Chris leaves behind his wife, five children and two grandchildren. Our brother’s death leaves a void in our lives that will never be filled however, our memories of him will never fade. Please keep Chris’ family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
